Hi. Has anyone successfully imported MOC images into GMT using grdraster? I have been working on this for over a week, and I (as well as several others helping me) have had no luck. Some issues:
1. Should the MOC images, processed with ISIS, be map projected or not? Altered with mocaspect?
2. What files are acceptable as input to grdraster? I found online that .bmp, .gif, .jpeg, .jpg, .tif, and .wbmp are raster images. I am only able to get my files into .tif, .raw, or .bmp files (ISIS2 dform and ISIS3 isis2std aren't working properly on the machines I use). I have not managed to get any of these data types into GMT (problems with -I (increment) and/or data type definitions in grdraster.info file).
Not quite sure where to start with data from the Mars Global Surveyor spacecraft? This article contains links to the raw data, and also links to the various software tools that members of the community have created to analyze the data itself.
Creating shaded relief maps or combination colorized/shaded relief maps with MOLA data is easy to do with the Generic Mapping Tools (GMT).
The MOLA gridded data set is a great resource. The Generic Mapping Tools (GMT) are a great tool set. This article shows you how to take the raw binary MOLA gridded data set and convert it into the netCDF format that GMT uses. Once you do that, a whole range of mapping options are open to you.
